Celebrate National Walking Month with Stag Walkers - We are hosting an ‘Alternative’ Walking Festival, from 23-31 May 2020. With lockdown rules still in place due to the Coronavirus, we are encouraging people to explore their local countryside on foot, and with the weather getting warmer it’s a great time to get out for some fresh air and exercise and achieve some personal goals. How to join the festival: It's really simple. Just go for as many walks as you wish during the festival period (following the latest Government advice regarding travelling and social distancing) and complete a short survey to tell us how many walks you did, the total distance you walked and what you loved most about your walks. Complete your walk survey: https://bit.ly/StagWalkersFestival2020 You can also share pictures of your walks with us by posting them to social media using the hashtag #StagWalkers or tagging the Stag Walkers account on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. For those new to countryside walking, we have some advice: - Stick to public rights of way (footpaths, bridleways and byways) - Look out for and follow the waymarkers (coloured arrows) on posts that show you the way to go - Keep dogs on leads near all livestock (and pick up any poo) - Don't stray into crops or private land - Take care crossing roads (they are getting busier) Anybody who would like to participate in Stag Walkers’ Alternative Walking Festival should follow government advice and walk alone, with members of your household or only one other person you don’t live with as long as you keep two metres apart. Please stay local and comply with social distancing measures. National Walking Month was set up by Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, to help us keep our daily exercise fresh, interesting and safe.
